How to make it

  • ****Bread Mixture First
  • Preheat Oven to 350 Degrees
  • You'll need 2 Bowls, 1 Medium sized & 1 Large one.
  • In the Medium sized bowl, mix together the Flour & the Baking Powder. I sifted them both, but you do not have to. Set aside.
  • In the Large Bowl:
  • Mix together the soft Butter, Sugar & Lemon Zest.
  • Add in the peeled Bananas & mix well. Add the 2 beaten Eggs & continue to mix throughly. Then add in the Coconut Flakes & mix well. Set aside.
  • ****For the Custard
  • I cheated did it in the microwave.
  • In a Medium sized bowl, pour in the Custard mix & add the 2 Cups of milk. Put into the microwave for 2 Minutes. Take out & stir. Place back into microwave for 2 more minutes, then take out & stir. Repeat 1 more time. The total time for the custard in the microwave is 6 minutes.
  • Note: The Custard needs to be stirred every 2 minutes. After the 5th minute in the microwave, the mixture expands. So do not do what I did & put it in a shallow bowl unless you want Custard all over the bottom of your microwave.
  • *****Bringing It All Together
  • While the Custard is in the microwave, pour 1/2 of the Flour/Baking Powder Mixture into the Sugar, Bananas, Eggs + Mixture & blend thoroughly. Keeping the Custard in the microwave stirred & then back into the microwave while you do so, add the other 1/2 of the Flour + Mixture into the Bananas + Mixture & make sure you scrape the sides so it's all mixed well.
  • When the Custard is done, the Bowl will be HOT. Carefully pour 1/2 of the Hot Custard Mixture into the Flour + & Bananas + Mixture. Mix well. Add the rest of the Custard & make sure it's well blended. It will be soupy.
  • Grease a Large Loaf Pan & then pour the Mixed Ingredients into the Bread Pan. Sprinkle the Coconut flakes all over the top.
  • Put the mix into the oven. At 1 Hour, stick a knife into the center of the bread. If the knife comes out clean, then remove the bread. If the knife isn't clean, keep cooking the Bread & check it every 5 minutes. If the top is perfectly brown & the knife does not come out clean when inserted into the cooking bread, then cover the Bread with Foil & continue cooking.
  • When knife comes out almost clean or clean, remove bread from oven. Turn out from Bread Pan & let cool for at least 20 minutes. It needs to rest & set before cutting.
  • Wrap whatever is left in an air tight container. The bread is softer & the flavors stronger the next day.
  • This is Goooood Stuffff.
  • Enjoy!

    I like this and if you don't mind, I am going to use up some of the black walnuts that are strewed all over the back yard in mine. My silly dog will eat as many as I can crack, but don't want to clog her up.
